First off, we want to welcome our new baby cousin, Jacob, into the world! He is cute as a little button, and we love him already. Ben is going to be a great big brother to this little bundle! We are excited to watch Jacob grow into the little person God has intended him to be!!! Welcome, baby Jacob!!!
This year marked the first year for kid birthday parties at our house. Tyler had seven little friends plus one cousin here to celebrate with him. We went with the Pirate Theme, requested by the birthday boy himself. The kids dug for buried treasure in the sand box, went on a treasure hunt to find the hidden loot around our house, decorated their own loot bags, and chose their own treasure out of the treasure box. All in all, I think we had a great first kid party.
Later that afternoon, grandmas and grandpas, aunts, uncle and cousins came over to celebrate for Pirate Party #2 of the day. Another great time! A day doesn't get much better than having birthday cake 2 times the same day!
Here are a few pictures to recap the birthday events.
